Re your review of "Ladies Crave Excitement"

http://www.archive.org/details/Ladies_Crave_Excitement_1935

This file runs perfectly without any compression artifacts when viewed with the GOM Media Player. In fact it's been my default player for more than two years, during which it has played all IA downloads (except one OGG) without any problems. I'm not knocking VLC, which everyone seems to love, but GOM is a lot simpler to use, and its huge number of features can be accessed through hotkeys or one simple onscreen menu.

Yeah, a friend also has told me that he loves GOM player, but I've got a Mac, and GOM only runs on Windows machines. I was watching it using MPlayerX, which probably tried to deinterlace it. I like MPlayerX, but it can be quirky. Should've tried it in Quicktime.

Isn't this a GOM version for MAC?

I'm less than knowledgeable about some of this stuff. (The only things I ever deinterlaced are my shoes.) Therefore I feel my way, relying on the evidence of my eyes. Viewing this file with GOM - no bars or pixelization. Viewed with VLC - no bars or pixellization, though the images might be slightly less sharp than with GOM, however this could be the result of prejudice working on my optic nerves. BTW, my operating system is XP.

When I obtained that movie, I decided to upload it "as is" and not to transcode it, because it had this defect: it apparently was rescaled vertically without first being delaced or detelecined.

I think that it is best to watch it without using a delacing filter. It won't be perfect, but it's ok.
